now, and they witnessed the utter disaster of a rollout of obama care. hishe gentle man knows, constituents as well as mine are faced with higher premiums. he has said to the american people they can keep their health care laws if they would like -- health care plans if they would like to. they have to figure out what kinds of plants are actually there for them. the administration claims the website is working just fine. we know the backend of that website is not working just fine. i am glad people are able to get on and see what is there. we don't really know how successful the sign-ups and enrollments are being. areo know most individuals facing higher premiums. those that have had to give up the plan are facing higher premiums and plants they don't necessarily choose, that they are forced to have because of the operation of this law. we need to focus on this issue. we voted on the alternative back in 2009. there was a planned the congressional budget office said ford reduce premium patients out there. we have not resolved this issue of health care. there is a better way. we

, are they going to change just like that? are they going to keep doing what they've been doing? once again, if they get a nuclear weapon, every country in the area will have a nuclear weapon. the question also comes, president obama spleen, the steel allows them to enrich uranium to a certain point. it only takes a few minutes to go from that point to nuclearization. if that's where you want to have them wear brand two months away from having a nuclear weapon at all times, if that makes everybody happy, that's pretty scary. >> host: back to the "washington post." they also write this. sunni arab states don't object to deal that could curb iran's nuclear objections, but they worry about the ramifications of ties between tehran and washington said one security expert, the big worry he said at a long-term deal normalizing ties between iran and the united states took him at the expense of sunni influence. what do you think about this? expanded a little bit. they like to make friends with our past foes and kind of ignore our allies. this kind of plays into it. the saudi's will not be the

veterans. why can't you put something in place to stop that? and my comment is everybody is keep talking about president obama, they're blaming president obama for this and that, but the one thing that they have to remember, everybody has to remember that he can't do it alone. he can't do anything by himself. thank you, and i'll hear your comment. >> guest: well, certainly on your last point, that's right. i think that there has to be a bipartisan solution to our budget problems. one of the things that -- a positive aspect about the budget deal that seems to be developing, small though it is, is that it would be an instance in which the democrats and the republicans have agreed on on something and that the white house presumably is okay with. so it may be a short deal, but at least it would be something that had bipartisan support. on the food stamp question, you know, i think that food stamp costs, you know, went up with the economy. when the economy went down, you know, that raises food stamp expenditures because more people need the assistance. some of that is coming down, but there's

staying power with? my in august 2011, president obama said he must step aside. why do you think that happened, because that may have attempted to some of the problems we have policy?yria >> they completely misread iran to russia's commitment keeping us in power. when you have intelligence providers to assad, the leverage that gave him and staying power was limited. i think both of those were not factored in. if you look at it from recent history lesson here, when you look at what happened in libya, you can see all the formulations of why he was going to go quickly. they took that, plopped it over in serious and said it was going to be syria. you have the same elements happening in serious that you had in libya with that huge exception of this commitment of iran not to let it go, and the russians cannot let it go. they needed a warm water port and it was their last toehold in the middle east. they ramped up their ability to protect assad and to try to at least increase the ability of ,he syrian regular army forces the military forces in a way that you did not see in libya or anywhere

because of obamacare. despite president obama's almost daily res the nation that if you like what you have, you can keep it. efts making that promise again as late as 2012 and we know it's not true. we know it's not true. and he knew it wasn't true. as early as 2010 when we debated some restrictive grandfathering regulations from the department of health and human services, senator enzi, who is ranking member of the help committee tried to get it fixed and again we saw a party-line vote, all of our democratic friends said no, let's not provide flexibility for the grandfathering provisions, let's maintain the provisions which have now resulted in more than five until people getting notices that the policies they have even though they like them they cannot no longer have. that's why i've said this is one of the biggest cases of consumer fraud ever perpetrated in the united states by virtue of its scope and the audacity with which these promises were made time and time again which are demonstrably not true, they're false. we know that obamacare is leading to a dramatic spike in insurance
